I have some concerns of getting to Sayulita from the Puerto Vallarta airport.
This is my first trip to Sayulita and I understand the only way to get there
from the airport in PV is by taxi. My flight arrives around 8:30 pm. Someone
said you should not take a taxi from the immediate airport area, but need to
cross a road to another (cheaper?) taxi stand. How safe is this and how much
will it cost me? Have there been any problems recently with these cabs?
Thanks for your help.
It's probably too late now, but there are public busses from the PV bus station to Sayulita for about 20 pesos! They stop in Bucerias as well (so people coming in by bus from Guadalajara can be let off in Bucerias to transfer to the city bus).
Transportation to Sayulita is easy and safe. I don't know if you've already been on your trip, but I just wanted to chime in that you will be VERY safe getting to Sayulita, even at night. In the spring/summer it will still be light out at 8 p.m. and there is NO REASON that you can't catch a taxi right in front of the airport. In fact LOTS of taxi's will be there to offer their service.
